Professor NATSUME Fusanosuke

natsume-1.jpg My courses are in the area of "Critical studies on Manga and animation." I am a pioneer in the research field of manga representation theory, and I have also researched manga awareness through the mass media and introduced Japanese manga overseas. I have written around 20 books involving manga research/critiques, such as Why is Manga Interesting? and The Adventures of Osamu Tezuka, and I would like to integrate these writings into a "Manga Studies" course at this graduate school. I was also honored to receive the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 1999.
